Course Listing

6000/8000-Level Courses

 

BIOL 6000/8000

INTRODUCTION TO SCIENTIFIC THOUGHT AND EXPRESSION 3

A writing intensive course for new graduate students that focuses on scientific hypothesis testing and reading the original literature in biology.

 

BIOL 6010/8010 ADVANCED MOLECULAR BIOLOGY 4

Analysis of recent developments in prokaryotic and eukaryotic molecular biology through evaluation and discussion of current literature.

 

BIOL 6020/8020 ADVANCED MOLECULAR BIOLOGY LABORATORY 2

Students will gain a working knowledge of essential laboratory techniques used in molecular biology. These techniques, including polymerase chain reaction (PCR), electrophoresis, DNA cloning, microscopy and transfection, will be used in a course project to express and analyze a protein of interest in cultured mammalian cells. The concepts underlying these procedures will be studied online before the lab. This course is designed to prepare students for careers in research, biotechnology and science education. 

BIOL 6090/8090 ADVANCED CELL BIOLOGY 4

Anadvanced course that stresses the experimental basis for current concepts of cell structure and function.

 

BIOL 6100/8100 RESEARCH METHODOLOGY: CELL AND MOLECULAR BIOLOGY 3

Prerequisite: BIOL 3030; CHEM 6500. An in-depth discussion of techniques used in the study of cell and molecular biology. Examples include chromatography, all fractionation, electrophoresis cell and molecular cloning.

 

BIOL 6200/8200 Signal Transduction 3

This course will provide an in-depth discussion of signal transduction topics important for cell/molecular biology research, emphasizing the interplay between
intracellular signaling molecules needed to regulate physiological responses.

BIOL 6920/8920 SPECIAL PROJECTS IN BIOLOGY 2-4

Introduction to research on a selected problem under the direction of an individual faculty member.

 

BIOL 6930/8930 SEMINAR IN BIOLOGY 1
